found one, a bike. searched high and low through the weekend and decided. the first bike seen, the second test rode, and after many other rides on other bikes, and other bike shops, the blue competition cycle was the clear winner. it was the winner the second it was ridden - super smooth, aggressive positioning, amazing kit...but of course as a consumer, you are told to shop around, and came back to this guy. the RC4. a lot of time will be spent together over the next few months, so i wanted it to be me and the bike, not me ON the bike, big difference and all accomplished.
